Irene's story

Irene is a loving and unassuming woman who works tirelessly for the welfare of her family. Over time, she has been persevering to reach her goal of improving her living conditions and having a better life. She is from the Kericho area of Kenya, near the Great Rift Valley escarpment (a major tourist attraction in Africa).

Irene has been farming for the past few years and also has a shop. (She is pictured in her shop.) Through those years, she has acquired significant experience and is considered among the best farmers in her village. Irene practices mixed farming. Her primary sources of income are crops and some small business ventures that help her make ends meet. She is very passionate about farming and loves cultivating her farm. That is why she wakes up very early every day to go to her farm to plow.

Irene has always wanted to increase her income by planting more crops. This is the reason why she is seeking this loan to buy fertilizers to improve her crop farm.

Kenya's Kericho area, one of the country's populated regions, has a high demand for crops. This means that Irene could increase her profits and satisfy the demand that is there. Irene’s greatest dream is to see her family happy, making progress and avoiding deprivation. She promises to pay back the loan in full.
